Shoes of Hope Comes to Greenfield and Kennedy

Every 2nd through 6th grade student at John F. Kennedy and C.O. Greenfield Elementary Schools received a new pair of shoes thanks to the Shoes of Hope event sponsored by Samaritan’s Feet International. As part of the donation, more than 40 volunteers performed a ritual of washing each students’ feet before giving them a new pair of socks and athletic shoes. Samaritan’s Feet has facilitated shoe distributions and foot washing programs in over 85 countries and served more than 6.5 million individuals with a new pair of shoes. The team at Samaritan’s Feet believes that shoes and the act of foot-washing can be a tangible foundation of hope to a person in need, is passionate about equipping individuals, and is committed to serve and inspire all people to believe in the value of opportunity and service of others.
